dc.description.abstract Endotracheal intubation is a common procedure in intensive care units (ICUs), and may be performed for numerous reasons and under varying circumstances. The aim of this study to evaluate the methods for confirmation correct endotracheal tube placement in Critical Care Units in Selected Hospitals in Khartoum, the prospective cross sectional study was conducted in Khartoum state hospital intensive care units, fifty patients included in the study in selected central hospitals in Sudan such as (Khartoum north teaching hospital(bahry teaching hospital),Ibrahim Malik teaching hospital, Omdurman military hospital and Ribat university hospital).the result revealed that 92% of the patients endotracheal tube (ETT)placement confirmed by the clinical methods, 2% confirmed by capnography. The study concluded that the most used confirmation methods for endotracheal tube placement in Sudanese hospitals are clinical assessment and monitoring pulse oxymetry. The clinical method of ETT position confirmation is acceptable in Sudanese hospitals but it cannot be enough as a sole and ideal confirmation method for detection of ETT placement. Moreover, it is not acceptable for medico legal aspect. Thus, using of other confirmation methods is highly recommended.  en_US
